There is an extremely exciting position in the design studies at Burg. A professorship in design anthropology (W3) is advertised:
The Design Department is searching for a PhD scholar with outstanding qualifications in the fields of cultural or social anthropology, ethnology, or a related discipline. As a third focal point besides design theory and the history of design or architecture, the incumbent is expected to establish the profile of the innovative field of design anthropology as an interdisciplinary research area and make it visible on the international stage. An engagement in issues related to design is of particular importance, leading to an examination of design in its material, cultural and social contexts and the broadening of the horizons of design sciences to include trans- and non-European perspectives as an extension of a Westernised design discourse.
